Tiger King Fans Think Jeff Lowe Is Actually Carole Baskin's First Husband
We are expected to accept the fact that Tiger King is insane from beginning to end and throughout since there are so many totally weirdevents that take place.
Throwaway remarks and occurrences happen, and we're expected to move on. We really spent three minutes on that at most when Joe was filming the video and the tiger began attacking his foot. In any other circumstance, that would constitute a separate incident.
In a similar vein, when it was hinted that Joe had set fire to his own zoo, killing many crocodiles in the process, it received about ten minutes of coverage.
Joe Exotic's character in the show had an odd progression, beginning as a little bit of a hero before revealing himself to be a complete jerk and then somehow rescuing himself somewhat toward the conclusion. That Jeff Lowe jerk just struck me as a complete scumbag who would sell his own grandmother for a fast money.
Of course, Carole Baskin's ex-husband Don Lewis, whom Joe and many others think she killed, is another crucial story point in the seven-part series.
Here's a conspiracy theory for you: according to certain Tiger King fans, Carole's first husband, Michael Murdock, whom she split from amid allegations of domestic abuse, is actually Jeff.
One supporter described the hypothesis in a Facebook post, writing:
This crazy rumor is also sweeping the Twitterverse:
M𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞(@MarieTweedie) (April 5, 2020) says, "Someone on Facebook said Jeff Lowe is Carole Baskin’s first (abusive) husband & she hired him to frame Joe Exotic and I can’t stop thinking about it #tigerking"
Adam (@oziadam) (April 5, 2020) says, "Geezuz… the plot thickens." SANCHO DE TEJAS👹 (@sppg_jefe) says, "Y’all ain’t believe it? Peep this pic I got."
Pretty insane, huh? As Jeff is supposedly only 67 and Michael Murdock would be 81, it doesn't make sense, but when have facts ever stood in the way of a good conspiracy?
All of this happened after Jeff revealed that a brand-new episode would air tomorrow.
The 67-year-old man reclined on a brown leather couch next to his 28-year-old wife Lauren Dropla while sporting a similar baseball cap and Harley-Davidson leather jacket in front of a tiger skin hanging on their wall.
The Tiger King and I, hosted by Joel McHale of Community, is essentially a "aftershow" that will include exclusive conversations with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, Jeff and Lauren Lowe, and others.
Naturally, the titular Tiger King won't be in it because Joe Exotic is presently serving a 22-year jail sentence for trying to hire someone to kill his competitor Carole Baskin. Although, Donald Trump did promise to look into pardoning Joe.
"On April 12, a new episode of Joel McHale's Tiger King after-show, The Tiger King and I, will air. It will have brand-new interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe," says Netflix.
This entire Tiger King situation is intriguing. And despite all the outrageous information that has surfaced, I still don't believe we have heard it all.
